At this time of year, as we join our family and friends and reflect on what we're thankful for, a common thread that unites the staff here at Zegrahm is, of course, travel. Here are just a few of the moments—across all seven continents—we're most grateful for experiencing over the past year:

It's back to school season! To help make the transition a little easier, we've provided you with the ABCs of Botswana. From aardvarks to zebras, expedition leader Lex Hes has seen it all.

Plus, I think I can safely add YOU to the list!"

Since that time Dick had had two hip replacements and we knew he would NOT be able to join Betty on the trek through the hills and forests—this was their third visit to the mountain gorillas. BUT thanks to our guide, Larry Weiss, Dick was able to be carried down the steep mountain and then back up. Larry knew how much it meant for us to see the gorillas again and went out of his way to find a solution...
